No, no, we didn’t cop out and buy Chick-Fil-A just because I had a baby. We just tried to replicate it with our own twist.
Entree: Sweet Chicky Nuggets. These were damn good chicken nuggets, who would have thought that you would add sugar to the recipe? And very easy to make. If you’re jonesing for some nuggs, I would highly recommend these.
Side Dish: Chick-Fil-A Waffle Fries. The secret to waffle fries are the holes. My mandolin was unable to produce adequate holes in the fries so we improvised and stabbed them with a fork. It seemed to work okay. If you want to make waffle fries, make sure your cutting utensil works well for it.
Dessert: Lemon Meringue Pie. Damn the science of baking! I have this major problem with pies that jiggle. Unfortunately, my pie did not firm up, instead it was lemon meringue soup. I don’t know why I keep trying these recipes that require it to be baked “until set.” I just can’t seem to handle it. But I won’t give up, this is Alton’s recipe and he has a segment about it, I’ll have to watch it before I try again. At least it looked pretty.
